Stewart the new featured RB

Recommended Posts

Per Rotoworld:

The Associated Press confirms coach Ron Rivera planned to use Jonathan Stewart as the "clear featured back" in Week 7 versus the Cowboys.

Beat writer Steve Reed notes that Rivera "tried to change things up schematically" to give Stewart a shot "as the workhorse running back." Rivera indicated that other such personnel and scheme changes could be coming this week, though he did not expand on his backfield plans. Stewart played 58 snaps in Week 7 compared to 15 for Mike Tolbert and just five for a benched DeAngelo Williams. If Rivera does want to establish Stewart, it makes sense to give him more than a one-week audition. Stewart is talented enough to turn the Panthers' struggling ground attack around. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues going forward.

I'm on my iPhone so cant link. I think this speaks to what will come in the future. The writing is in the wall for DWill.

Makes sense....

Stewart is in the stage of his career where making him the primary RB gives him the best shot for him to explode.

Williams already had his career year.....years ago. Probably setting the stage to cut him after this year and rid themselves of the over investment at the postion.

He's practiced tweeting more than he has practiced football this season it appears.

Must be nice to get paid 40 Million just to jack off on twitter all week and not even play.

DWILL is probably our most tradable player. He has plenty of talent left and a few year left in him.

Unfortunately we get at best a 3rd round pick but it's the obvious move.

Big fan of DWILL

i'm ready to move on from dwill...i suppose, or at least resigned to the idea that he won't be around and that the team is moving on.

as long as they can get out of his contract unscathed, i'm fine with it. i'm not expecting much for him, though but the freeing up of $$ will probably make just about anything worth it.

i don't think he's done by any means and he'll probably end up on a team that goes further than the panthers in post season any time soon....and then he'll end up on IR. at any rate, once a player leaves he panthers, i don't really care what happens to them.
